John Horner is an expressive painter, multi-talented who works in oils, water colour, acrylics, pastel as well as printmaking and produces excellent value quality artworks.

John Horner’s painterly style follows in the spirit of expressionism. He is inspired by cityscapes stimulated by New Zealand’s sharp light contrasts. His paintings often become part social and part architectural comment especially when the subject matter is demolished to make way for more buildings. His current work includes his local Auckland suburbs of Newmarket and Mt Eden.

True to form, John Horner returns energetically inspired to capture the essence of his recent excursion off the beaten tracks in Vietnam. The mood and colours vary from the cadmium deep yellow river to the precariously built stilt houses, “I found the patterns and people incredibly stimulating” explains Horner. If you’ve travelled to Vietnam or want a taste, Horner’s paintings bring Vietnam alive on his canvases.

He studied at Elam School of Fine Arts in the 1960s, where his lecturers included Colin McCahon and Robert Ellis. Many of his contemporaries from those halcyon days are still prominent in the New Zealand art scene.

Extra Event: Watch the creation of one of John Horner’s expressive and energetic paintings at the gallery Saturday 10 October from 12.00 – 2.30 pm.
